English Premier League Starting XI: Liverpool v Manchester City 07 October 2018

Manchester City will definitely have the momentum with them given they are coming fresh from a victory over Hoffenheim in UEFA Champions League while Liverpool hit a snag after facing 1-0 defeat to Napoli.

Ladbrokes, Sky Bet and William Hill have got the former AS Roma man at an even 4 to net the first goal of the evening - with Sergio Aguero priced at 9/2 by a few of the major bookies.

"The reason why last time he didn't [start] - the only time he didn't [start] - was for another reason, a tactical movement, so Kyle Walker can attack more on the right side than him", Guardiola said at a news conference.

Klopp's side produced one of their best Champions League performances to seal a 3-0 win against the Citizens in the first leg of their quarter-final clash at Anfield in April.

Pep Guardiola has given Man City fans a huge boost heading into Sunday's massive clash against Liverpool at Anfield.

When asked if De Bruyne will be fit to face the Reds in the Premier League, Guardiola was concise in his reply: "We will see on Saturday". Salah remains an excellent player and will score goals in the future. Both the sides have won seven and drawn one in their last 8 league matches.

At the pre-match press conference, Jurgen Klopp gave an update on the fitness of Liverpool midfielders Naby Keita and Adam Lallana.

Liverpool will host Manchester City this Sunday in what will be the biggest game of not only this weekend but also the season as the two teams have set the pace so far.

Each meeting between the two club's in recent years has seen Firmino act as a personal body guard for Fernandinho, effectively meaning his national compatriot has been unable to receive the ball without the Liverpool forward's say-so.

"It's very tough, probably the toughest away game of the season in the Premier League", admitted City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, who worked under Klopp for four years at Borussia Dortmund.

"We're not just taking part, we're not just looking for a point, we're looking to win and get all the points, but you're not going to get much harder opponents than Manchester City".

'I have a really good relationship with Pep.
